    i actually think the majority of these "rules" are quite sexist. how unfair. deadbeat dads? try deadbeat parents, theres plenty of neglectful mothers out there too. cheers to GOOD parents, male or female, single or partnered, who dont use there children as pawns.

    I took these in the spirit in which were written.

    By Mums, based on the experiences they have had in their own lives. It's not meant to be a published manual for sole parent child-rearing, or a white paper on parental responsibility.

    if you are wearing anything exdp hasn't seen before, obviously you have a lot of money , therefore he should stop paying child support at least for a few months to teach you a lesson...

    It is NEVER ok to send your child to the ex's house when sick!

    It is up to the custodial parent to care for the child when sick

    A well child has 2 parents whereas a sick child has only one evidently!

    The other parent can still proclaim to be a decent parent despite never lookin after the child when sick but if WE try to hand the child over when sick we are doing the wrong thing

    Another rule that comes to mind:

    -If you are a WORKING single mum, you are abandoning your child and failing to provide at least one stable adult figure in their life. You should quit immediately because, of course, living below the poverty line would be far better for our child's wellbeing.

    -If, however, you are a stay-home single mum, you are lazy and obviously only had the kid so you could lie around bludging off the government. Because, of course, child-rearing is SUCH an easy job- just ask Sharon from over the road and listen to her rattle on about the trauma of being home alone with baby for 8 hours a day while her husband goes to work.

    -Also, if you are a young single mum, you should automatically pack up your things and move to a notoriously high-crime, low socioeconomic neighbourhood a thousand ks away from anywhere, and resign yourself to a life among your own kind. You could not possibly want to stay close to your support networks and job opportunities (what do you need those for?!) now you are an unwed mother. In fact, please leave quietly and refrain from mingling with any of the respectable married women down at the daycare on your way out, lest your trashy choices discolour the local neighbourhood.

    This thread is classic- I wish we could get it published somewhere like the Telegraph or ACA website

    Lets not forget the rule that if you spend time with your child in a domestic violence shelter because of the FOB's behaviour, you have failed to provide a stable home environment and should lose custody for being an unfit parent.

    (This was actually said to me).
